Accordion Fold Album




I made an accordion fold album for my sister while I was studying in Alaska. I had a project assignment to create a handmade book incorporating printmaking techniques. She had been sending me postcards from our favorite places in New England while I was away. I decided to make an album with pockets and envelopes to hole the postcards as well as prints I made inspired by these locations.

Here is the book!







I am currently working on another book similar to this one for my sister to create a scrapbook out of, I'll be sure to post that on here as well once it's finished!!

Want a book similar to this one? Or perhaps another style book? Feel free to check out my Etsy store and send me a request!

  2. I am an altered book nerd! I love taking vintage books and turning them into works of art!

    This is a great idea, I'll have to try it out.

  5. Would love to see a lesson on this accordion book, particularly on the pockets and how you made each page the same if you didn't make copies. Lessons on transfers by the way would be great both with transparencies and without.
    Thank you for your lessons, they are clear and easy to follow.
